BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -Detroit Lions linebacker Jordon Dizon has been sentenced to 24 hours of community service for driving while ability impaired.
His lawyer, Peter Schaffer, pleaded guilty to the charge on Dizon's behalf Thursday in Boulder. Dizon, a former Colorado star who didn't attend the hearing, also must pay $895 in fines and court costs. He will be allowed to complete his sentence out of state.
Dizon originally faced charges of driving under the influence, driving the wrong way on a one-way street and failing to provide proof of insurance after his arrest April 20. A police report said his blood-alcohol level was 0.097, above the legal limit of 0.08.
